Twenty million matches played. Close to 290 years worth of gameplay registered. 2.5 millions hours logged in. Over 181 million kills confirmed. This is just a taste of the data 343 Industries recorded from the Halo 5: Guardians Multiplayer Beta.

This was a huge endeavour for everyone on the Halo 5 team and one that we approached with nervous excitement,” said Josh Holmes, Executive Producer on the “Halo 5: Guardians” Multiplayer Beta. “We’re thrilled with the results – the level of engagement and response from our community shattered all of our expectations.


The amount of gameplay data and player feedback will prove useful to 343 Industries, who will use it to make the game’s multiplayer experience even better.

Throughout the beta we monitored feedback channels including web forums, reddit, Twitter, Facebook and our newly launched Halo Community Feedback Program,” said Holmes. “From these sources we tracked thousands of pieces of detailed feedback. The team has spent the past few weeks poring over player feedback from the aforementioned sources and from this we have developed an extensive list of improvements for the game, including adjustments to Spartan Abilities, Weapons, Competitive Skill Ranking and much more.
